Book Review of *The Child Wore Pearls* by Morgan Matthews @jodyblogs #TheChildWorePearls #MorganMatthews

June Randolph and her father make the perfect team at their small, family-owned jewelry store. While the pair have always maintained a close relationship, the dynamic she shares with her mother has proven much more challenging throughout the years. Now at seventeen years old, June has found herself contemplating life beyond working at her father’s shop. Though it isn’t until she is befriended by a ritzy, older customer that June begins to come out of her shell. The woman’s kindness and infectious energy are a welcome addition to her young life the summer before her senior year of high school. However, secrets from her mother’s past begin to threaten June’s newfound happiness – calling into question all that she has ever known. Confronted with the often-perverse intentions of the human heart, the teen must uncover the truth which has been concealed by years of deceit.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Wow, talk about good suspense, this was by far the best suspense I have read this year. It grabs you from the first page and does not let go until the end. This is the kind of suspense anyone will enjoy reading. The characters were well developed and relatable. Do not judge this book by its cover because the plot twists are amazing, thrilling, and unexpected. The authors writing style and her development of the plot and characters are by far the best I have read, what a truly amazing imagination Ms. Matthews has. 

I would like to thank Ms. Matthews for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
